A graduate of the National Academy of Arts, a high school for the performing arts that existed briefly in Champaign-Urbana, IL in the 1970s and 1980s, Linda researched and wrote about the Academy and her  fellow-alums, hosting a well-attended “Once & Future Reunion” in Champaign, IL in 2015 to connect alums and further discussion about the greater impact of the academy on the arts.


The Academy documents and other artifacts found a long-term repository at the Sousa Performing Arts Archive, University of Illinois, Urbana, IL found here
